According to TMZ sources, authorities were stopped by a business in West Hollywood around 3:30 after someone called and said Scantlin violently shook his ex and then attempted to drag her around.

Deputies reportedly talked to witnesses and to the victim and gathered enough information to arrest the artist for domestic violence.

"He was very mouthy," an insider told TMZ of Scantlin's behavior during the arrest.

In September, Scantlin was booked at an airport in Texas after drunkenly getting into it with a flight attendant.

He was taken into custody yesterday and held on $20,000 bond.
